We stayed there for 2 nights and were very satisfied.It is situated in a very pleasant,peaceful area just a short walk from the beach.There is plenty of free parking around the hotel. Our room was spotlessly clean and had a modern bathroom. The breakfast was very good but we felt that the evening meal was rather overpriced. However, there are not many other eating options nearby. The "camino de ronda" is a must.It's a very attractive beachside walk both south and north of the town. The scenery is spectacular.

Now our fifth annual cycle and relax trip to Palamos and four times now at the Ancora Usual friendly welcome especially from the waitress in the restaurant sorry we really should know your name. Rooms at front of the hotel clean and comfortable and we were allowed 2 rooms between 4 of us to shower before late check out. Its a lovely setting in a resendtial area a short walk to the lovely La Fosca beach and beyond. This really is a stunning setting and when we visit it is quiet enough. 20 minute stroll into Palamos but if like us you are getting on in years a car is an advantage especially when one of your party does not drink. Although in summer parking may be an issue. It’s family run and we keep seeing the same faces year after year. Definitely recommend

Not actually planning to stay in a hotel on this trip (was to be a sailing holiday) but illness forced me to recuperate in a hotel Even whilst il I got the feeling this is somewhere I would choose to stay When better sampled the cooking and it was lovely with variety Buffet breakfast also good Didn't get to use pool Would love to come back for a planned stay

I went there with my girlfriend. We choose the menu, consisting of 2 starters & 1 main course, drinks not included in the price. Drinks arrived, all good as expected. Gazpacho (first starter) was really good, tasty. They gave us also some nice toppings to add on the gazpacho. So far so good. Second starter, I ordered a Paella and my girlfriend the 'Avocado & Salmon salad', but what she got was a lot of lettuce with oil on top as a seasoning and very few pieces of salmon and even less avocado, maybe even less than a quarter -medium size- avocado. We were really shocked by the salad and my gf returned the course, because it was not what we ordered. The restaurant manager very kindly asked to add some more avocado and salmon to the salad to fix it but we declined the offer. Paella took a little longer, but it had a good taste, what surprised us for the second time was the 'shrimp'. Let me explain, for those who do not know Palamós, it is really famous for its shrimps quality...thus we were expecting a big nice red coloured shrimp on the side of the paella, but we did not. Instead we found the opposite. So far 2 good and 2 bad, out of 4. For main course we ordered angler fish/rape and cod/bacalao, and sadly they were not good. The angler fish had a very poor salad on the side and the course was disapointing on its presentation for the nearly 50€ bill we paid (this includes a discount from the owner after we gently complaint on the food). Cod was also very bad presented although taste was good and I was really hungry. Desserts were ok, neither bad nor good, average. We ordered two coffes as we had to drive our way back to Barcelona and both of them had a burned taste. After reaching out to management and kindly explaining that we were kind of disappointed, they discounted drinks and coffees. They look like nice people, but maybe we got there on their worst day and worst hour of their service. I am sorry but we are not going back. I wish you good luck.

we arrived here by foot, after walking for 5 hours from s'argo, on a self guided walking trek. we were tired and very hot. that was a very long hill up from the city to get here. checking in went well. my husband immediately bought and brought up cold beer from the bar, wonderful. i went round to the back and had a very refreshing swim in the pool, amidst a small lawn area. dinner was a very tough piece of veal for my husband. spinach cannelloni and a potato and onion tart for me. very little atmosphere in the dining room. the bed was hard and the pillows soft and thin. possibly all due to us being part of the 1/2 board package on our walking tour. too isolated for us, we like to walk about a village/town before and/or after dinner. this hotel is situated in a residential area.
